Kyle Correctional Center

The Kyle Correctional Center is a private prison for male inmates that is located in Kyle, Texas. This facility is operated by the Management & Training Corporation (MTC) and can house a maximum of 520 inmates.

Kyle Correctional Center is an In-Prison Therapeutic Community (IPTC) that houses Substance Abuse Offenders. Nearly all of the men incarcerated at Kyle Correctional Center will eventually be released. It’s MTC’s responsibility to provide a wide range of educational, vocational, substance abuse, cognitive behavioral, and life skills programs to prepare these men to successfully return to their communities.  

An In-Prison Therapeutic Community provides services to qualified offenders identified as needing substance use treatment. It is a six-month in-prison treatment program followed by up to three months of residential aftercare in a transitional treatment center (TTC), six to nine months of outpatient aftercare, and up to 12 months of support groups and follow-up supervision. 

Offenders are sentenced to an IPTC by a judge as a condition of community supervision in lieu of prison/state jail, or voted in by the Board of Pardons and Parole (BPP) BPP as a modification of parole.

“This facility has actually taught me a lot. It’s taught me more about patience and tolerance; how to judge. My cognitive thinking came up to keep me from relapsing again. It’s changed my life in the way where I can make better decisions. And I believe I can see my future a little bit brighter than I once saw it, you know?” ~ Cruz Solis, resident, Kyle Correctional Center, May 2018.
